Rashard Lewis # 7
215 lbs
Alief Elsik HS '98
Sonics '98 - 2(32)
The longest-tenured player on the Sonics roster, Rashard Lewis has come a long ways from the 18-year-old who was the last person left in the "Green Room" at the 1998 Draft as he surprisingly fell out of the first round. Lewis was finally taken out of Alief Elsik High School by the Sonics with the Draft's 32nd pick, a move neither side would regret. Lewis forced his way into the starting lineup by the end of his second season and was the team's second-leading scorer in the 2000 Playoffs. Lewis improved his scoring average during each of his first five NBA seasons and has become a versatile scorer as dangerous from behind the three-point line (he's twice competed in the NBA's Three-Point Shootout) as he is using his 6-10 size to post up smaller defenders. Lewis' development resulted in the fourth 50-point performance in Sonics history in Japan on Oct. 31, 2003 and his first All-Star appearance in 2005 in Denver. On March 13, 2007, Lewis passed Gary Payton to become the Sonics all-time leader in three-pointers. He also ranks in the franchise's top five in points and minutes and was voted to the Sonics 40th Anniversary Team.
